cramping after pumping
Thu, 04-07-2005 - 12:25pm

I know that pumping, like BFing, makes your uterus tone back up after pregnancy. But I thought it would be done with really quickly, yet I still get (very mild) cramps a little while after pumping almost every session. (I'm 14 weeks PP). Has anyone else had this continue for a long time? And for how long? It's not a huge irritant or anything, I'm just curious....

I sometimes feel like I am going to get my period but it never comes and I am 11 weeks pp. I am not sure of what they are but I had a C-section and I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

I'm almost 14 weeks postpartum and still sometimes get that pre-period cramping feeling. I also had a C-section so maybe that's why like the PP said.
